 7 nights on Spirit of Freedom

exploratory diving in the Coral Sea

Join our small group of experienced divers venturing out into the Coral Sea for stunning sites with amazing diving!

​​Sleek and spacious, the ‘Spirit of Freedom’ offers the best in live-aboard dive cruising.

​This is a rare opportunity to explore the offshore Coral Sea Reefs of Flinders and Lihou Reefs. A first for Spirit of Freedom, we will travel 240km east of Cairns to explore the rarely visited Lihou Reefs, where you will find the sheer walls, gin clear water, and schools of pelagics typical of the Coral Sea reefs.


Depending on the weather we will spend a second day of diving at Flinders Reef or head north to Herald Cays, another Coral Sea Reef, known for its amazing corals and swim-throughs. The last day will be spent diving the Holmes Reef.


​This trip has our own Trip Leader on board the boat and in Cairns, taking care of all logistics of for you!
